Debating with My Cousin

Back in February I was in Texas and I found myself debating with my cousin Ramon. I should preface this by saying he’s a really good guy and we always get along (my mother’s brood has always gotten along well with those of my aunt Mary), but Ramon and I should never debate against each […]

George Washington Carver and Freedom

Most people don’t know what freedom is. I can firmly attest to what it is because I’ve experienced what it isn’t. The following is the first in a two part series: You might think this is a post about George Washington Carver the person. It is not. Among my numerous Texas stories from the past, […]

The Day I Played a Joke On Mrs. Monk

Winter of ’86/’87 I’m in Mrs. Monk’s history class in San Angelo Central High School. I’m finally settling down to actually living in West Texas, having found a fellow northern classmate named Cheri to spend time with after school hours. During school Mrs. Monk’s class is one of my favorites as the people here are […]

Last Summer (in Texas)

Me with my family of Mexicans.  Doin’ it old skool Mexican house decor style, scary crucifix, mounted deer head and all! Good times.

Narrating and Violence

I haven’t blogged proper about my Texas trip, saying only a few things here and there. There are waaay too many things to cover in one post or in even three but here is something I needed to put out there. When I was in San Angelo my cousin made me a copy of some […]


My favorite scene from “The Big Lebowski” was when The Dude’s longtime friend died and was cremated. The low end vase for the remains was $200 and The Dude was seen remarking how expensive that was. The next scene shows him preparing to scatter the ashes in the ocean, saying a short eulogy and holding […]

Since HMT Didn’t Show up

Rice wine. We know you can’t see it but it was there. . . Nachos and Shiner Beer (that was a different restaurant and a different meal obviously). Eat your heart out HMT!!! MUHUHAHAHAHAHAHHAHAAA!! And this was cool. At some point I’m going to have to start writing about it. But right now these pics […]

Mexi Posts

Too much to possibly write about right now but I will say this: I didn’t get any pu$$y but I think my reaction timing is just off. Hung out with Phelps and his brother at a Japanese place where we got the sake in (will post that at a later date) afterwhich we hung out […]


Michigan has had record heat this year so I’m pretty much acclimated and not bothered by the Texas heat. Played tennis at high noon yesterday under the burning West Texas sun. I didn’t die. I’ve made sure to stay hydrated with Gatorade and bottled water. I can’t drink this West Texas water. Too nasty. I […]

Tall Cold Glass of Phlegm!

Co-worker: So you’re gonna go meet up with people you know from the internet??? Mexi: Yup. co-worker: Do you think that’s safe?? Mexi: Should be. They’re cool with me. . .. . . . .. . . . . . . . It helps that I told them I’m a 12-year old girl. I haven’t […]
